What defines better cities – and better communities? More efficient buildings. More durable roads and bridges. Smarter land use. Safe, reliable energy infrastructure. And the raw materials to power it all.
We need all of these things to be more durable and flood resilient. To save energy and use fewer resources. To power the wheels of the economy, create jobs and provide services. To contribute to, instead of detract from, the quality of living in our communities.
Lafarge is building better cities by making them safer, more sustainable places.
Use the links below to explore the many ways we contribute.
What do you build?
The buildings across our cities come in all shapes and sizes. From the gleaming skyscrapers that lend identity and character to our cities, to the tiny bungalows in the ‘burbs that we call home. Hospitals and schools. Shopping malls and stadiums. Factories and agricultural buildings. Find out how we’re building better cities with better buildings.
Facing cities’ pavement challenges.
Most people simply take pavement for granted. They merely walk across it, drive along it or park on top of it. They don’t wonder how it’s made, or how it could be made better. They only notice pavement when the ride gets rough, the potholes come out and the gridlock due to construction begins. Learn about our solutions for concrete and asphalt pavement.
For every step of a mine’s lifecycle.
Mining creates jobs at the very start of the value chain of almost every product. From building materials to transportation systems, mines enable city building. As a single-source supplier, we understand the challenges of mine development, production and closing. Find out about our contributions to better mining.
Powering better cities.
The energy industry is vast and complex. The requirements of a hydro dam project are entirely different from those of a wind farm. What works in one province may not yet pass in another province. We are a part of almost every aspect of the energy construction industry, right across the country. Learn about some of the exciting new ways we contribute.
Take back the land.
Isn’t it time we reused that tainted soil? Contaminated brownfield sites should not be doomed to a future of fenced-off areas and ‘hazardous’ signs. At Lafarge, we’ve developed proven techniques for soil solidification/stabilization and land remediation. Find out what it takes to get the right mix to heal the earth.
Making connections that last.
Connections are at the heart of every bridge. It is their purpose – connecting one place or thing to another that otherwise would not meet. Whether over land or water, each individual bridge is different, yet the solutions are often similar. Accelerated bridge construction that keeps durability front and centre is a challenge across projects. Learn about our solutions for each.
